As optical fiber communications and fiber lasers approach fundamental limits, interest in multimode fibers has grown. Optical fibers designed to support multiple transverse modes offer opportunities to study wave propagation in a setting that is intermediate between single-mode fiber and free-space propagation. A variety of qualitatively-new phenomena have been observed recently in multimode fibers.
